Are You Ready for Some Mother*%&#%@$ DINOSHARK?

Dinoshark

The Earth gets warmer. The glaciers break apart. A prehistoric egg thaws and hatches. It's Dinoshark. HOLY $%*(#)^ @&^*!!!!!!ONE!

One of the most divisive issues today is global warming. Some people, including most of those pesky "scientist" guys, have concluded that humans are doing serious harm to the climate with our pollution and that we are in for a really bleak future. And some people counter those claims with accusations of "bad science," and "scare tactics."

A recent report from NPR talks about a study done by social scientists which determined that individual world views account for the disagreement. And, you know, that just seems to be the way people operate. The only problem is while we're arguing over who is right, we're not addressing the problems that we do have.

Which is why we have the Syfy channel to keep us on our toes.

On March 13th, Syfy will debut the latest feature from producer Roger Corman: Dinoshark.

The most frustrating thing about Dinoshark is that I can't find much information about it, other than the fact that it exists and is definitely on Syfy's programming schedule. I can't even find hints of a plot, though I'm hoping that it's some totally absurd mash-up of whichever Jaws movie featured the shark attacking the hotel (because what's more bad ass than trying to eat a building?) and the Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer skit from SNL.

Or perhaps Dinoshark could quickly evolve legs and thumbs and, I don't know, throw over a casino or something.

If this has you scratching your head, don't worry. Roger Corman has bigger problems with the approved follow-up to Dinoshark: Sharktopus. They're currently trying to make that make any sense. It's not going well.

Half of me is so far beyond thrilled at the incredible possibilities offered by Dinoshark that I'm on the verge of losing bladder control. The other half of me is remembering just how profoundly sucktastic Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus turned out to be, and wondering if it's worth wasting my enthusiasm on such a potentially doomed venture.

In the words of Natalie Imbruglia, I'm a little torn.

I think Sharktopus might be the greatest idea ever had by anyone in the history of hyperbole, and Roger Corman is the king of the derivative dinosaur film.

Did you perchance catch "Dinocroc"? Fascinating social commentary.

And these things we're speaking of here...they're real things? Not the creatures themselves, but these movies are real movies? This isn't a joke? Really?

I've got to get Syfy. They don't have any of this stuff on Treehouse.

This should be awesomely bad!
